I am planning to relocate to Chicago after I complete my education and I am looking for clean, safe neighborhoods that have relatively (read: built after mid-1980s) housing stock. I am looking exclusively for non-attached housing.

I presently live in a neighborhood that looks like this:

Google Maps

It would also be helpful if it was close to the freeway so I can have easy access to Chicago or the Loop for cultural and recreation purposes. It will also be helpful if it is close to a grocery store but these are optional and not required.

Any help would be appreciated, I don't think I can post the same post twice so I did not post this to the "Chicago Suburbs" forum.

A price range would help.

And looking at your pic-there is nowhere in the city of Chicago that looks like that.

This thread might be better off moved to the burb forum with a name change.

Yeah, that picture is definitely suburbia. I don't know where you're originally from, OP, but most large cities don't look anything like that.

I hate neighborhoods like yours. You may be able to find subdivisions like that in the ex-urbs since they have been built up from farmland in the last 15 years.

You mean what people used to call a "house"?

This reminds me of the one guy that posted a thread about "lifestyle centers."

I wanted to get my point across clearly. To some people "house" might include a condo or a loft both of which are attached housing.

I knew I probably should have posted it to the "Chicago Suburbs" forum. Can the moderator please move the thread? And as for the price range I am willing to pay $250,000

Yeah, if you want new housing like that with large yards and have it be reasonable in pricing - you're probably going to be out in the suburbs 20-40 miles from downtown.
